The scheduled start times and order of games all remain the same, but the state tournament will shift to a Friday-Saturday-Sunday event. Due to pitch count limitations in baseball, the OHSAA always wants to keep both semifinal games of each division on the same day so that both finalists played their semifinal games on the same day. The state tournament is hosted at Canal Park, the home of the Cleveland Indians’ AA affiliate Akron RubberDucks.
